Our giving stems from ongoing relationships with our partners, not from a pile of grant applications. This sort of “pollination effect” is a core part of our operating model, and its ROI approaches infinity.
Our giving philosophy is informed by our work in biomimicry, reflecting the wisdom of natural systems. We aim for:
Connecting ideas amongst varied fields – creative, independent thought! We believe this is what leads to optimal long-term decision-making.
Reconnecting investing to the real world. True investing (as opposed to trading or speculation) is inherently a connected activity, intertwined with the real world, and of benefit to that same real world – not confined to the world of bits and bytes on the screen.
Fostering new models. Different approaches – philosophical, intellectual, and operational – that help to re-align investing with its original purpose: service to our communities and our planet.
